"There's a Reason"
ON FLAG DAY.
WHY WE FIGHT
Extraordinary Insults and Ag
gressions of Imperial German
Government Left Us No Self
Respecting Choice But to
. Take Up Arms In De
fense of Our Rights
Military Masters of Germany
Denied Us Right to be Neutral
Filled Our Unsuspecting Commqnities
With Vicious Spies and' Conspirators
-They Are Themselves in the Grip
of the Same Sinister Power That
Has Stretched its Ugly Talons Out
and Drawn Blood From Us-When
by Our Arms Kaiserism is Crushed
Our Flag Shall Wear a New Lustre.
Washington, June 14.-President
Wilson delivered a notable speech
here in commemoration of Flag Day
in which he again outlined the posit
tion of the United States in regard to
the world war. The address is in full
My Fellow Citizens: We meet to
celebrate Flag Day because this flag
which we honor and under whicir
ive serve is the emblem of our unity,
our power, our thought and purpose
as a nation. It has no other char
acter than that wiich we give it from
generation to genervation. The choices
are ours. It floats in majestic silence
above the hosts that txecute those
choices, whether in peace or in war.
And yet. though silent, it speaks to
us,-speaks to us of the past, of the
men and women who went before us
and of th a records they wrote upon
it. We col brate the day of its birth;
and from its birth until now it has
witnessed a great history, has floated
on high the symbol of great events.
of a great plan of life worked out
by a great people. We are about
to carry it into battle to lift it where
it will draw the lire of our enemies.
We are about to bid thousands, hun
dreds of thousands, it may be mill
ions, of our men, the young, the
strong, the capabie men of the na
tion, to go forth and die beneath it
on fields of blaod far away,-for
what? For some unaccustomed
thing? For something for which it
(has - never sought the fire before?
American armies were never before
sent across the seas. Why are they
sent now? For some new purpose,
for wvhich this great flag has never
been ca-rried before, or for some old,
familiar, heroic purpose for which it
has seen men, its own men, die on
every battlefield upon which Ameri
cans have borne arms since the
These ar-e questin~ns which must be
answered. We are Americans. We
in our turn serve America, and can
serve her with no private purpose.
We must use her flag as she has
always used it. We are accountable
at the ba~r of history and must plead
in utter frankness what purpose it
is we seek to serve.,
It is plain enough how we were
forced into the war, The extraordi
nary insults and aggressions of the
Imperial German Gover-nment left us
no self-respecting choice but to take
up arms in defense of our rights as
a .free people and of our honor as a
sovereign government. The military
masters pf Germany denied us the
right to be neutral. They filled our
unsuspecting communities with vicious
spies and conspirators and sought to
corrppt th~e opinion of our people in
their owvn behalf. When they foundi
that they could not do that, their
agents diligently spread sedition
amongst us and sought to dIraw our
own citizens from their allegiance,
and some of those agents were men
connected with the official Embassy
of the German Government itself here
in our owvn capital. They sought by
violence to destroy our industries and
arrest our commerce. They tried to
incits Mexico to take up arms against
us and to drawv Japan into a hostile
alliance with her,-and that, not by
indirection but by direct suggestion
from the Foreign Office In Berlin.
'They impudently denied us the use
of the high seas and repeatedly exc
cutedi their threat that they would
send to thei-r death any of our people
who ventured to approach the coasts
of Europe. And many of our own
'people were corrupted. Men began
to look upon their own neighbors with
suspicion and to wonder in their hot
resentment and surprise whether
there was any community in which
hostile intrigue (lid not lurk. What
great nation in such circumstances
would not have taken up arms? Much
amj we had desired peace, it was de
nied us, sad not of our own c'hoirae.
Tis flag under which we serve wouldl
have been dishonored had we with
held our hand.
But that is only part of the story.
We know now as clearly as we know.
before we were ourselves engpge that
they are not our enemies. They did
not originate or desire his hideous
war or wish that we should be drawn
into it; and we are vaguely conscious
that we are fighting the!r cause, as
they will some day see it as well
as our own. They are themselves
.- the grip of the same einister power
that has now at last stretched its ugly
talons out and drawn blood from us.
The whole world is at war because
the whole world is in the gri-p of
that power and is trying out the great
battle which shall determine whether
it is to be brought under its mastery
or nfing Itself free.
The war was begun by the military
masters of Germany, who proved to
be also the mastra of Austria-Hun
gary. These men have never regard
ed nations as peoples, men, women,
and children of like bldod and frame
as themselves, for whom governments
existed and in whom governments had
their life. They have regarded them
merely as serviceable organizations
which they could by force or intrigue
bend or corrupt to their own pur
pose. They have regarded the smaller
states, in particular, and the peoples
who could be overwhelmed by force,
as their natural tools and instruments
of domination. 'Their purpose has
long been avowed. The statesmen
of other nations, to whom that pur
pose was incredible, paid little at
tention; regarded what German pro
fessors expounded in their classrooms
and German writers set forth to the
world as the goal of German policy
as rather the dream of minds detach
ed from practical affairs, as prepos
terous private conceptions of German
destiny, than as the actual plans of
responsible rulers; but the rulers of
Germany themselves knew all the
while what concrete plane. what well
advanced intrigues lay back of what
the professors and the writers were
saying, and were glad to go forward
unmolested, filling the thrones of Bal
gan states with German princes, put
fing German officers at the service
of Turkey to drill her armies and
make interest with her government,
developing plans of sedition and re
bellion 'in India and Egypt, setting
their fires in Persia. The demands
made by Austria upon Servia were
a mere single step in a plan which
compassed Europe and Asia, from
Berlin to Bagdad. They hoped those
demands might not aroue Europe, but
they meant to press them whether
they did or not, for they thought them
selves ready for the final issue of
Their plan was to throw a broad
belt of German military power and
political control across the very centre
of Europe and beyond the Mediterran
can into the heart of Asia; and Austria
Hungary was to be as much their tool
a.nd pawn as -Servia or Bulgaria or
Turkey or the 'ponderous states of
the East. Austria-Hungary, indeed,
was to become part of the central
German Empire, absorbed and domi
nated by the same forces and in
fluences that had or!ginally cemented
the German states themselves. The
dream had its heart at Berlin. It
could have had a heart nowhere else!
It rejected the idea of solidarity of
race entirely. The choice of peoples
played no part in it at all. It con
templated binding together racial and
olitical unIts wvhich could be kept
together only by force,-Czechs, Mag
yars, Creats, Serbs, Roumanians,
Turks, Armenians,--the proud states
)f Bohemia and Hungary, the stout
ittle commonwealths of the Balkans,
the indomitable Turks, the subtile
peoples of the East. These peoples
liid no wvish to 1)e united. They ar
dently desired to direct their own
affa.irs wouhld be satisfied only by un
disputed independence. They could
be0 kept qiet only by the presence
or the constant threat of armed men.
They would live under a common
powver only by sheer compulsion and
etwait the day of revolution. But the
German military statesmen had reck
onedh with all that and were ready
to deal with it in their own way.
And they have actually Carried the
greater part of that amazing plan into
execution! Look howv things stand.
Austria is at their mercy. It has
actedl not upon its owvn initiative or
upon the choice of its own people
hut at Berlin's dictation ever since
the war began, Its p~eople now de
sire peace. but cannot have it until
leave is grantedl from Berlin, The
so-called Central Powers are in fact
but a single Power. Servia is at its
mercy should its hands be but for
a moment freed. Bulgaria has con
sented to its will and Rtoumania is
overrun. The Turkish armies, which
Germans trained, are serving Ger
many. certainly not themselves, and
the guns of German warships lying
in the harbor at Constantinople re
mlindl Turkish statesmen every day
that. they have no choice but to take
their orders from Berlin. From H1am
burg to the Persian Gulf the net is
Is it not easy to understand the
eagerness for ipeace 'that has been
manifested ,from Berlin ever since the
s:nare wvas set and sprung? Peace,
peace, peace has been the talk of her
F'oreign Oflce for now a year or more;
not peace -upon her own initiative, but
upon the initiative of the nations over
which she now (looms herself to hold
the advantage, A little of the talk han
bee~n madeO public, butomost of. it has
been private. Through all sorts of
chsannels it has come to ,me, and in all
sorts of guises, but never with the
terms disclosed which the German
Government would be willing to ac
cept. That government has other
valuable pawns in its hands besides
these I have mentioned. It still holds
a valuable part of France, though with|
slowly relaxing grasp, and practically I
the whole of Belgium Its armies
press close upon Rus'sia and overrun
.loland at their will. It cannot go
further; it dare not go back. It
wishes to close its bargain before it
is too late and it has little to offer
for the pound of flesh it will demand.
The military ma.ters under whom
Germany is bleeding see very clearly
to what point Fate has brought them.
It they fall back or are forced back
an inch, their power both abroad and
at home will fall to pieces like a
house of cards. it is their power at
home they are thinking about now
( nore than their power abroad. It is
hat power which is trembling unser
their very feet; and deep fear has
entered their hearts. They have but
one chance to perpetuate their mill.
:ary power or even their controlling
political influence. If they can seedre
peace now with tihe imamense advan
tages still in their hands which they
have, up to this poinit apparently
gained, they will have justified them
selves before the Germuan people: they
will have gained by force what they
promised to gain hy it: an immnense
expansion of German power, an in.
mense enlargement of (erm:an idus.
trial and commercial opportlunitles.
Their prestige will be secure, an:t with
their prestige their political power. if
they fall, their people themselves will
thrust them aside; a government ac
countable to the people themselves
will be set up in Germany as it has
been in England, in the United States,
In France, and in all the great coun.
tries of the modern time except Ger
many. If they succeed they are safe
andGermany and the world are undone;
'f they fail Germany is saved and tile
world will be at peace. If they suc
coed, America will fall within the men
ace. We end all the rest of the world
must remain armed, as they wid re
main, and must make ready for the
next step in their aggression; if they
fail, the world may unite for peaco
and Germany may be of the ulion.
Do you not now understand the new
intrigue, the intrigue for peace, and
why the masters of Germany do not
hesitate to use any agency that prom
ises to effect their purpose, the deceit
cuf the nations? Their present partic
ular aim is to deceive all those who
throughout the world stand for the
rights of peoples and the self govern
ment of nations; for they see what
immense strength the forces of jus
tice and of liberalism are gathering
out of this war. They are emldoying
liberals In their enterprise. They are

The- sinister intrigue is being no lest
actively conducted In this countr3
than in Russia and in every country ir
Europe to which the agents and dupes
of tihe Imperial German Government
can got access. That government has
many spokesmen here, in lalces high
and low. They have learned discre
tion. They keep within the law. It is
oplinion they utter now, not sedition.
They proclaim the liberal piurposes of
their masters; declare this a foreign
war which can touch America with no
dlangor to either her lands or her in
stitutIons; set England at the centre
of the stage andi talk of 1her ambition
to assert economic dominion through
out the world ; appeal to our ancient
tradition of isolation in the politics of
the nations; andi seek to undermine
the government with false professions
of loyalty to its principles.
But they will make no head way. Trho
false betray themselves always in
every accent. It is only friends and
piartisans of the German Government
whom we' have already idenltitled who
utter these thinly disguised disloyal
ties. Trho facts are patent to all the
wvorld, and nowhere are they more
plainly seen than ini the United States,
where we arec accust omed to deal with
facts and not with sophistries; and
the great fact that stands out above
all the rest is that this is a Peoples'
War, a war for freedom and justice
andI self-government amongst all the
nations of the woerld, a war to make
the world safe for tihe peoples who live
upon it and have made it their own,
the German 1)eople themselves in,
